A well-balanced and complex Second Wine from Saint-Julien

The estate

A historical reference of the Saint-Julien appellation, Chateau Gruaud Larose was founded in 1757, when different estates merged. The property received its current name when the heir of Joseph Gruaud added "Larose" to his name, thus becoming Chateau Gruaud Larose. Acquired by the Merlaut family in 1997, Chateau Gruaud Larose embodies the excellence of the fine Saint-Julien red wines and seduces lovers of the appellation with its signature style.

The vineyard

Chateau Gruaud Larose 2021 is a Saint-Julien wine that stems from an 82-hectare vineyard. The vines are 46 years old on average and are planted on Garonne gravel soils, which were deposited over 600,000 years ago. Converting to organic farming since the 2019 vintage, the vineyard of Chateau Gruaud Larose is managed according to the principles of organic and biodynamic viticulture.

The wine

Sarget de Gruaud Larose is the Second Wine of the estate.

The vintage

Although the mild, wet winter favored an early, even budburst, frosts in April affected some Merlot plots. The lack of sunshine and the dampness of spring slowed down the development of the vine. The milder conditions at the beginning of June ensured that a good-quality flowering period, with the exception of some run-off on certain Merlot vines. The weather was unstable and variable from the time the grapes set (mid-June) until the end of the veraison at the beginning of August. The very good conditions recorded from mid-August until the harvest were ideal and helped to accelarate the ripening process. The grapes harvested from September 23rd to October 7th revealed a pleasant freshness and tension that resonate with great historic vintages.

Vinification and aging

Plot-based vinification, 50% in cement and 40% in thermo-regulated wooden vats. Yeasting and alcoholic fermentation at 24-26°C. Maceration for 20 to 30 days. 3 vertical presses. Placed into barrels at pressing. Malolactic fermentation carried out alongside alcoholic fermentation thanks to co-inoculation. Aging lasts for at least 14 months in French oak barrels (15% new, 85% in one-year-old barrels).

The blend

Sarget de Gruaud Larose 2021 comprises a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (52%), Merlot (40%), Petit Verdot (6%) and Cabernet Franc (2%).
